Question about 1996 Saturn SL
No, but if you have a junk yard such as Pull-Parts, you can take just that part off of another tran in about 45 minutes. You wil need to remove the 11 bolts on the valve body and they are around the outside. There is one on the inside of the left corner( left of the shift arm) that will be removed and the 4 on the right side by the shifter arm must be left on. You can get a that information in the Saturn service manual. The bolts must be torqued on at 97 inch lbs in sequence then the trany needs reprogramed; it can be done manually by performing 10 upshifts at each gear 10 times and the car needs to be stopped and started over again and not allowed to go into the next gear until each one has went through the 10 step. Or you can live with the harsh shift until the computor relearns.
This however, takes a couple of weeks depending on how often you drive it. Of course you can get another trany at the junk yard and put it in. About a six hour job.It too will need the 10 step learning process. Then your problem should be over.
